My friend Fiona, had nominated me for a prize – and I won?!!!! Here is her dedication to me, that had me in tears and filled with gratitude and love for someone whom I think is also most worthy of praise for all she does on a daily basis for Greg and her boys.
Christel has a bone illness, Ankylosing spondylitis which causes her a lot of pain and daily battles to get her body to function normally. She has recently undergone chemo to assist and as she says this illness “causes me …to be great friends with anti-inflammatory drugs and bleeding ulcers”
Despite the pain she goes through she still remains optimistic, fairy believer, loving wife to Dion & mom (Kevin (17), Liam (15) and Victoria (11) and step-mom to Nic (20), Douglas (11) and Jenna-Lee (8) & adopted son Kyle (18)
Christel also struggles with various other tormenting issues (many from her younger days) but mostly with one of her sons who suffers from severe ADHD as well as her own inner bi-polar II struggles and through all this she still makes us laugh with her jokes (but we know she hurts deeply and I who understand her daily struggles as I too share the darkness), she helps me with her will to still be optimistic and carry on.
I think Wenchy needs just to be thanked (even though friends don’t say thank you) for all she does for her family & friends and even the occasional stray (I’m still awaiting for her to approve my adoption papers LOL)..she is totally FANTY!!!!
